We have been working hard for our bites this week on just about every creek in the region. The fish have been closed lipped, but if you put in the time and grind on em they will bit eventually. The photos below are a pretty good representation of what you can expect for the remainder of the month. The rising tides should trigger a little fish movement in the coming weeks so if your still procrastinating that steelhead trip its time to act.

We have had some fresh fish move into the lower part of the klamath river and that's where the success rates have been the best with 4 to 8 nice adults and bunch of half pounders to fill the voids. The rest of the guys are reporting 1 to 3 opportunities a day with some days a little slow for this time of year.

There are still plenty of dates and rivers to choose from, so take a look at what's available and give me a call @ 530-598-0530.
